New, flat Stanley

Alabama Department of Transportation workers were busy Wednesday afternoon resurfacing, widening and adding safety stripes to a portion of Stanley Avenue.

Each side of the road from (insert length here or place to place here) got a new layer asphalt, along with a 2-foot widening barrier.

ALDOT churns up the road, then puts down a hot rubbery liquid with the asphalt on top. Then another layer is added on top.

Shown here are ALDOT workers putting on the new layer of asphalt on Stanley Avenue. Earnest Calloway (with finger pointing upward) loves working the machine.
